SSSL Workshop

Montag/Monday, 12.12.2016, Pantheon, Muttenz BL


A joint Workshop organized by the
Swiss National Lab for Solid State Lighting SSSL of Swissphotonics
and by: LASSIE-FP7 - CSEM - AMIRES - BaselArea.Swiss and EPIC


Intelligent efficient solid-state lighting

This is the follow-up of the Large-area SSL Workshop held last year in Lausanne.

The introduction of light emitting diodes (LEDs) as solid state lighting (SSL) sources is now recognized as one of the technological revolutions at the verge of the 21st century. In 2014, the Nobel prize for the invention of the blue LED celebrated the adoption of this new technology, which, with the promise for high efficiency and considerable energy savings, has totally changed the lighting paradigm in the last decade. Currently, we have entered a new phase, where the unique properties of the LED sources are being exploited to bring SSL into the new digital era : for the first time in the human history, it is possible to develop smart and human centric lighting sytems.

The Workshop is divided into three Sessions:
  • First, the final results of the European Project LASSIE-FP7 will be presented, with focus on the development of large-area intelligent SSL modules with high efficiency and high lighting quality for professional and architectural lighting.
  • The second session will be devoted to technical developments and industrial applications in the field of smart lighting. We will span from components to systems, as well as on the potential of SSL for innovative solutions for human centric lighting.

Large area SSL – LEDs  – OLEDs – Digital lighting – Intelligent/Smart lighting – Efficient lighting – High quality lighting – Human centric lighting – From SSL devices to lighting systems – Status & Challenges of SSL

Target public
Technical, R & D, companies (from SMEs to LMEs), but also light designers, architects, or eventually end-users (e.g. large retailers, etc.)
